How To Get Rid Of Tooth Pain
In this blog post, I will talk about how to heal tooth pain in the comfort of your own home. I write this post for you, if the idea of having to go to a dentist in a state of pain emergency makes you cringe.
You can take pain medication if you want to take it. But please know that it works by masking the pain, by deadening the nerves that allow you to feel. So whatever is causing the pain is still there. The pain will come back as soon as the pain medication wears off.
What if you could clean it up and get rid of what’s causing the pain? This can be done with time tested, proven remedies.
Clean Up the Problem and Heal
You will need four things: water, clove oil, the most natural sea salt you can get, and an Aloe Vera plant. You will see results with any kind of salt, but the best kind to have on hand is real sea salt. I’m sure there’s different brands but I’m talking about something that doesn’t have added bleach or anti-caking ingredients.
If you’re interested, here’s more information about the importance of using real salt.
We need salt. Our bodies are made up of about 70% salt water. The salt we take in needs to be real. Soldiers in ancient Rome were paid in salt. People have been tortured by slowly being deprived of salt! Salt is very important.
When you go into the hospital for just about anything, the first thing they do is hook you up to a pure saline solution. The anti-caking ingredients that are added to common salt dehydrate us and make it so our cells can’t absorb the minerals.
So get some pure, filtered water, sea salt, and good quality clove oil. It’s important to have these things on hand before tooth pain comes up, especially when dealing with little people and pain. It may be difficult to find clove oil if it’s 11 o’clock at night.
Here’s What to Do
Make a salt water solution of one spoonful of salt, water, and one drop of clove oil. I get essential oils from Mountain Rose Herbs. If you have a better source of course just use it. Swish the solution around the tooth several times a day, even every 20 minutes if you have to , until you feel relief. Continue to do this throughout the day. The next day continue as well, but you won’t have to repeat as frequently. On the third day, swish out your mouth about 3 times a day. Keep going if you need to, but by day 3 you will have major relief.
Apply the gel from a fresh Aloe Vera leaf on the part of your face that is closest to the tooth. get as close to the site of the tooth as you can. Repeat at least 3 times a day. Keep th eleaf in the refrigerator for repeated use.
Take a section of the Aloe leaf and place it in a glass of water. Refill the water as needed, leaving the leaf in the glass and drink throughout the day.
By then you can think more clearly because you won’t be in pain. You can start planning your trip to the dentist or whatever it is you need to do.
When trying to help small children, not all kids can swish water. If they are too little, I’ve had big success with adding a few drops of clove oil to a carrier oil like olive or coconut. Rub it into your child’s jaw while reading a book to them, and maybe try to teach them how to swish but sometimes they can just be too fussy to learn at that point.
Note: I suggested clove oil because it’s a powerful pain reliever and cleaner. If you also have oregano oil on hand you can definitely add a drop or two of that as well. I’m saying one drop in case you need to give this to a child. If it’s for an adult who can handle something a little stronger, try three drops in the salt water solution. That’s about what I would personally use myself.
